Happy Tuesday! Today’s card is for Sparkle’s weekly Christmas card challenge. This week she has a fun sketch to use!
Here is a close up of the image to see the detail.
I stamped and embossed the image, and then used the scalloped nestie to cut it out. I then added some glitter around the edge and fun flock to the cute bear. I punched out the snowflakes, painted them with Shimmerz and added a rhinestone for a little more bling. What is a Christmas card without the bling?

Happy Wednesday! Today’s challenge over on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog is to use punches in a creative or different way! This really was a challenge for me as I do not own a lot of different punches, but I gave it my best shot!
I started by punching what seemed to be a zillion hearts out of different pink cardstock. I then slightly curled them and started gluing them to a piece of cardstock that I cut in a rough circle. I let each layer dry before adding the next, I don’t know if I really needed to do that, but I had to get all of the glue off of my fingers! Once I had all of the hearts put together I put a Pretty in the centre of the flower and brushed on a bit of Shimmerz to every other layer to help give it even more depth. I then punched out more hearts in yellow for the butterflies and used the SU! slot punch for the body, and for a place to add the pearls. The background is the reverse or negative side of the D’vine swirl folder that I sponged some ink onto. I finished it all off with a Verve sentiment that is embossed and a bit of piercing along the bottom edge.

Happy Friday! I’m so happy that it is finally Friday. Lee has a job interview this morning, my eyes, toes, fingers, and everything else that can be crossed is crossed for him! I also needed to get a quick birthday card done so I used the 3rd sketch from Stamps and Smiles.
Here is a close up of the sign with the shimmerz and embossing.
I stamped the cute little Changitos in Versafine and embossed them with fine detail embossing powder to seal the image before colouring them with Copic markers. I also used Shimmerz on the sign for a little bit of fun. I then covered a chipboard 9 with cardstock, trimmed it, added red glitter glue and Diamond glaze and then pop dotted it. I ran the patterned paper through the Cuttlebug with the Number collage folder for a bit of texture.

Happy Wednesday! This morning I decided that I was going to get a card done no matter what! I also did a bunch of chores, but for the most part I spent the morning playing! I used Taylor’s sketch for my card today, I think it is perfect to celebrate a year of cupcakes!
I had some trouble with the oval shape, but eventually got it when I remembered my old templates from when I first started scrapbooking many moons ago! I think I need to get the nesties, I wasn’t big on that shape but now I want them too! So many toys, so little money!

I have a huge mess to clean up in my playroom, I don’t know how it got this big with the lack of out put, but it is a mess and I’d better get it done before the kids get home. I hope you all have a great day and as always, thanks for stopping by!
